Vlookup and a Pivot Table

Posted on 2013-05-31
Last Modified: 2013-05-31

I need to perform a basic division but using two different pivot tables. Pivot Table A represents number of stores with different values. The number of stores will fluctuate on a weekly basis (increasing or reducing). Pivot table B has the exact the same format but number of stores stays the same. Please refer to the attached file. Thanks!

You say in the attachment if B3 Matches J3... do you mean linearly?  I.e. do you really want if B3 matches any store in column J?

Also how are store numbers to be entered in column R?

you can ignore column R for now...the goal is to match store numbers in both pivot tables. Pivot Table B will always stay the same. If Pivot table B has store # 737 but Pivot table A does not then there should be no calculations. Pls refer to row #  394. Hope this helps. Thx!
